By now most of us know the importance of skin care in our daily beauty rituals. Like myself, you’re busy chasing goals and/or little ones so when it comes to our beauty routine, let’s face it, locking down a skin care system that’s effective and expeditious can be a challenge.

So what’s the solution? An easy-to-follow system that helps us get results we want faster.

Better, fewer products that are more tailored to our individual skin concerns.

Why a serum?

Not only does a serum penetrate deep into your skin, enriching from the inside out, but it also aides the rest of your skin care in working more efficiently.

Clarins USA has 4 unique serums that specifically cater to your personal skin concerns.

My match? Clarins Double Serum. This serum is perfect for all ages, skin types, ethnicities, and is safe to use during pregnancy.

The star ingredient is turmeric, which protects and restores skin. With 21 plant extracts, my skin is even toned and radiant. Clarins Double Serum works overtime smoothing skin and visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Beyond question, it’s a true all-in-one serum.

So let’s talk about that ‘get glowing and get on with your life’ routine we discussed in the beggining. Below is my recipe for an effective 3 step routine.

  1. Cleanser:

    One size does not fit all. Be sure to pick a cleanser that not only works to adequately remove the day, but is specific to your skin type. If you have dry skin, you may want to try an oil-based cleanser. If you have oily or blemish prone skin, you may want to look into an oil-free foaming cleanser or even a medicated one.

  2. Serum:

    First, take the ‘Clarins Serum Match’ skin quiz and find your serum #SkinSolution.

    Until recently, I wasn’t aware of importance of the application method when applying my Double Serum. Enhancing circulation, this method revives radiance and promotes firmness. So take a few extra second to apply using the technique in the images below and see THIS video for an even better understanding.

  3. Moisturize:

    Save time and let your moisturizer work hard for you by seeking a daytime moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or higher. For the evening time, I personally use a moisturizer that’s exceptionally hydrating. Again, one size does not fit all so be sure to choose an AM and PM moisturizer that’s right for your personal skin type.
